"Medievalist Obsessions in 19th Century French Art" presented by Erinn Gavaghan, School of Visual Arts, College of Fine Arts, University of Oklahoma.
The talk will look at the works of artists in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris at the end of the nineteenth century. This is a time and a place where avant-garde artists were at once the height of modernity and seeking to preserve the nostalgia of simpler times which manifested itself in tendencies in artwork (the use of stained glass in particular) to possess medieval styles and themes.
The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is cosponsored by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies University of Oklahoma.
Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no test, just interesting information about life long ago.
